From the opening monologue by the venerable host Jack Perkins: "After the Civil War, it appeared as though Blacks in the U.S. had finally gained a measure of freedom with the abolition of slavery; but "reconstruction", which was supposed to grant Blacks equality, soon gave way to "restoration", and the return of White supremacy. By the turn of the century, an African American who attempted to buy land or run for political office faced the threat of being lynched; smiling at a white woman or talking back to the white boss could result in death, or at the very least, torture. Why did the emancipation from slavery lead to an even more savage bondage for African Americans? Who was behind the growth of racism after the Civil War? Tonight, we're going to try to answer those questions.". (1992, Color, 47 Min).
